Review: Crobar – by Noms by Naomi I was really interested to try Crobar by Gathr Foods, because they contain an ingredient I’d never tried before and is pretty alien to the food that we eat in the UK… it’s a particularly sustainable and ethical source of protein which the company calls “the tasty, nutritious and sustainable protein source of the [...]

Gathr’s Crobar – by A Blackbird’s Epiphany

   There are many different raw fruit bars on the market these days, and while they're all delicious, they don't really offer anything new from one another, except perhaps the range of flavours.

Edible insects. Is this our future? I’ve been trying cricket flour in a health bar – by Suzi Grant from Alternative Ageing

I have never been squeamish about trying unusual foods.  I was eating snails in garlic butter (l'escargots) in France at the age of 4, strange child!  But when I came across a brand new protein, health bar, that was not only wheat-free, dairy-free, but made from cricket flour, I got really excited about it. What could be [...]

Wer meinen vorletzten Eintrag gelesen hat weiß, dass der Postbote vor kurzem ein spannendes Paket von lieferte. Mitten drin ein für mich besonders spannendes Produkt: „Protein-Riegel“ bei denen das enthaltene Protein aus Grillen (engl. Cricket) gewonnen wurde. Kein Grund angewidert das Tab oder gar den Browser zu schließen! Insektenprotein könnte DAS Protein der Zukunft [...]
